      A KITTEN has almost died after its owners fed it a strict vegan diet.

      The horrific case at a North Melbourne animal hospital has prompted a
      warning about the dangers of people "forcing ideologies" on their
      pets.

      Lort Smith Animal Hospital veterinarian Leanne Pinfold said the kitten
      was brought in this month by its owners, who were believed to be
      vegan.

      She said the kitten's diet of potatoes, rice milk and pasta had caused
      it to become critically ill.

      "It was extremely weak and collapsed when it came in. It was almost
      non-responsive," Dr Pinfold said.
